Thanks for the link, Robert - not quite the same, but close enough. I'll head out there right now. Over on the West Side while I live on the East side, (near the river - LOL)

I did look for LED strips but the ones I ran across were expensive, too long, and the individual leds too far apart. I didn't think of automotive applications. The ones you linked to seem to be ideal, at least worth trying out. Are those the exact ones you bought? Did you get them from that site or source them elsewhere?


Yes, that link is to the same site & product I bought. I've seen similar ones at CT but more expensive, and also on ebay, but found these on the FT site where I semi-regularly buy some of my e-cig supplies, so I took a chance, added them to my last order, and so far so good. (just did another quick set up and 20 shots and no errors).

I noted the company is in Hong Kong. Do you recall how long your order took to arrive? No matter - I am going to order them anyway. Price is good and shipping is free - I've even discovered patience as I grew older... :lol:

The free shipping options vary, sometimes showing up in a couple weeks but more often around a month -- for that order I spent an extra couple bucks for the 'Canada e-packet' shipping option and it was delivered two weeks (which is pretty typical for that option).

I just ordered 2 pair - I'd hate to have one fail and not have a spare. I didn't note the 'Canada e-packet' option but did spend the extra buck+change default option which suggested a max of 20 days. I chose the black 6000k white light ones. The site seemed very professional.

One thing that I especially liked about these is that the light shining out seems to be uniform and diffused, rather than the hot spots produced by the puck lights. I feel it might work better for our purposes. See pic:

I got my Chrony in and put the LED ontop thru the defusers and I got better reading than my experience before. I'm happy. But I need to make sure I skim the pellet about a inch over the sensor.

I always put the pellet path between about 3" and 4" over the sensors, as I'd rather come a bit closer to the cheap LED pucks and risk goofing up and hitting one of those than whacking a $100+ instrument. If your lighting setup is adequate I doubt you need to shoot nearly so close as 1". But if you're secure in doing so, as with a two-point cradle for the airgun, then I suppose there's no harm in going so low either... still, I'd want 1/2" of lexan or plexiglas in front of the front panel to be on the safe side.

It worked better when I didn't shoot thru the quiet box. But than again I had everything lined up on a deep freezer.

Well todays a new day and well should be getting something else in the mail today :D

I picked up a shooting chrony today and some lights from Princess Auto. I mounted the lights in a steel gunwash pail and put the chrony inside. They are red LED 2.5" clearance/marker lights and they are on sale for 6 bucks.

It does not seem to matter that the lights are red, In fact, I did not get a single error and both of my Phantoms are shooting at exactly 500 fps with 14.35gr pellets.

I'm at like 95% for it registering and I'm able to aim higher.

177 and 22.

Just putting some velcro up so I can take the pod light off easier than the double sided tape.
